Emotions evolved to drive us to take action in the face of danger.
We retain the emotional system of our cave-man ancestors, who regularly faced life-and-death situations. In modern society, those emotions often overwhelm thought.
In a real sense, we have two minds, one that thinks and one that feels. The rational mind lets us think, ponder and reflect.
But the emotional mind is impulsive and powerful. Usually, the two work in harmony, but intense feelings sometimes allow the emotional mind to dominate the rational mind.
The limbic system surrounds the brainstem. Later the basic neural evolution produced the neocortex, where the brain thinks. Meanwhile, on the sides of circuitry of emo- the brain, there grew the amygdalas, a pair of structures that act as a storehouse of tion, what we are born with is what emotional memory. The amygdala gives life emotional meaning and passion.
In a crisis, worked best for the it reacts almost instantly, far more quickly than the neocortex. This emotional brain can last 5, human act independently of the thinking brain.
The amygdala gives extra weight to memories generations, not the last gener- of emotional arousal, so we have vivid memories of pleasure or danger. It stifles or last five. We experience emotional hijackings when the amygdala is triggered and the neocortex fails to control it. Strong emotions interfere with attention span and every aspect of clear thinking. Even so, our goal should never be to eliminate emotion.
Instead, we must find an intelligent balance of reason and emotion. The rest is the result of emotional intelligence, including factors like the ability to motivate oneself, persistence, impulse control, mood regulation, empathy and hope.
They work separately. It is possible to be intellectually brilliant mind is far quicker than the rational but emotionally inept. This causes many life problems. Yale psychologist Peter Salovey mind, springing cites five major areas of emotional intelligence: Managing emotions — handling feelings so they are appropriate. Motivation — marshalling emotions in service of a goal. Recognizing emotions in others — empathy, which is the fundamental people skill.
Handling relationships — skill in managing emotions in others. Self-Awareness It would seem at a glance that our feelings are obvious, but they often are hidden from us. It is a neutral state that continues self-examination even during intense emotions.
Emotions can be and often are unconscious. They the pessimistic begin before a person is consciously aware of the feeling. Thus there are two levels of stance are ex- feeling, conscious and unconscious.
Unconscious emotions can have a powerful effect tremely prone to on thoughts and reactions, even though we are not aware of them. When we become emotional hijack- ings. Thus self-awareness is the foundation for managing emotions and being able to shake off a bad mood. Managing Emotions A sense of self-mastery and the ability to withstand emotional storms has been praised as a virtue since the ancient Greeks. A life without passion would be boring; the goal is appropriate emotion.
Our emotional life maintains a constant background hum, rarely becoming intense. Yet managing emotions is a full-time job. Much of what we do, from work to recreation, is an attempt to manage mood.
The art of soothing ourselves is a basic life skill, some say one of the most essential psychic tools. The design of the brain means we have little control over when we will be swept by emotions or what those emotions will be, but we have some control over how long they last.
We can change our behavior and even take medication. It can last for hours and create a hair-trigger state, making people wrongness deep in the body is part much more easily provoked.
When the body is already in an edgy state and something of a steady back- triggers another emotional surge, the ensuing emotion is especially intense. One way ground flow of to cool off from anger is to seek distractions. Going off alone helps, as does active feeling that contin- exercise. Sadness and bereavement are often the emotions that alleviate rage, but full- ues throughout the day.
To break a depression cycle, challenge the thoughts feeding the depression and schedule pleasant distractions. These can include exercise, sensual treats, accomplishing some small task, helping others in need or prayer.
One powerful tool is cognitive reframing, or looking at your situation in a more positive light. The greatest athletes, musicians and chess masters are distinguished by their ability to stick with arduous practice, year after year, beginning early in life. One critical skill is the ability to restrain about everything we do, think about, emotions and delay impulses, to defer gratification.
This is the key to a host of efforts, imagine, remem- from dieting to getting a degree. Thought and feeling are Anxiety undermines intellect, while good moods enhance thinking.
Those who are inextricably woven adept at harnessing their emotions can use their anxiety for motivation. The relationship together. Too little anxiety means no motivation and poor performance.
Too much anxiety impairs intellect. Peak performance comes in the middle. A mildly elated state called hypomania is ideal for writers and other creative people. Hope and optimism also play a powerful role in life. Hope means not giving in to negativism or depression in the face of setbacks.
Optimism means having a strong expectation that things will turn out all right. Optimists attribute failure to something they can change, and therefore do not get depressed about it. Optimism is an emotionally intelligent attitude that boosts performance in the business world. Psychologists have identified a peak-performance state called flow. This is emotional intelligence at its best. Through vivid examples, Goleman delineates the five crucial skills of emotional intelligence, and shows how they determine our success in relationships, work, and even our physical well-being.
What emerges is an entirely new way to talk about being smart. The best news is that "emotional literacy" is not fixed early in life. Every parent, every teacher, every business leader, and everyone interested in a more civil society, has a stake in this compelling vision of human possibility.
